As most any potter will tell you, glazing is probably the most challenging part of making pottery. It takes a lot of practice and experimentation to get it right (and it is easy to ruin a successful pot by getting the glazing wrong).


Sarah Jaeger is one of those potters who gets it so right. In today’s video, an excerpt from her DVD Throwing, Altering, and Glazing For Function and Beauty, Sarah takes us through the glazing process of one of her gorgeous pots (a process developed after plenty of practice and experimentation!). –Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
